Students are selected for the ensemble through a multi-step audition process each year. Originally created as a small, lunch time ensemble for male voices, the group has grown into a full chamber choir for mixed voices that maintains an active performance calendar throughout the year. The Troubadours earned top honours in 2017 at the World Strides festival in Honolulu, Hawaii, and they will be traveling to South Africa for their first international performance tour in 2019.
